Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
The Bachelor of Science in Information Technology helps students prepare to develop careers in the broadly defined field of information technology. Core courses provide students with sufficient exposure to networking and system administration, web and multimedia content development, application development, including database management systems and web applications, technology integration and deployment in a user community, including needs assessment, user-centered design, technology transfer, and ongoing support. The degree program is designed by following ABET requirements defined by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET. After fulfilling the core course requirements, students can obtain greater depth in several IT areas, including network administration, web & database administration, or web-database integration.
The program objectives and outcomes of our Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BS in Information Technology) program are consistent with the mission of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, which is: To provide nationally competitive and fully accredited professional programs at the certificate, associate, baccalaureate, and graduate levels. This program enables immediate employment upon graduation or for continuation for advanced level studies in the respective disciplines.
Information Technology - Student Outcomes
Information Technology program enables students to achieve, by the time of graduation:
- Analyze a complex computing problem and to apply principles of computing and other relevant disciplines to identify solutions.
- Design, implement, and evaluate a computing-based solution to meet a given set of computing requirements in the context of the program's discipline.
- Communicate effectively in a variety of professional contexts.
- Recognize professional responsibilities and make informed judgments in computing practice based on legal and ethical principles.
- Function effectively as a member or leader of a team engaged in activities appropriate to the program's discipline.
- Use systemic approaches to select, develop, apply, integrate, and administer secure computing technologies to accomplish user goals.
